Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema confirmed that freshman quarterback Joel Stave suffered a broken collarbone against Michigan State on Saturday. Stave is expected to miss the rest of the season.

Stave suffered the injury on the second play of the second half when he was sacked by Michigan State's William Gholston. The Badgers led Michigan State 7-3 at the time, but the offense managed only 29 yards of total offense after Stave left the game and lost 16-13 in overtime.

Danny O'Brien, the transfer from Maryland who began the season as Wisconsin's starter, replaced Stave during the game. That doesn't mean O'Brien, a junior, will start Wisconsin's next game against Indiana on Nov. 10.

With the Badgers on a bye this week, Bielema said O'Brien and senior Curt Phillips will split time with the first team in practice this week.
